The long-awaited reunion between Sandara Park and Vice Ganda sparked excitement as the two celebrities came together for a shoot on a Korean variety show. Whether planned or not, their joyous encounter delighted fans and marked a heartwarming Kapamilya homecoming for Vice Ganda, a former contestant of the talent search show “Star Circle Quest.”
A video capturing their reunion showed Sandara Park and Vice Ganda embracing each other warmly, with Park’s infectious excitement leading her to stomp her feet in joy. The adorable moment quickly gained attention on social media platforms, with fans expressing their overwhelming happiness and admiration for the pair.
Behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot, reported to be for SBS Medianet’s “Idol Truck Project,” featured Vice Ganda and his comedian friend Petite mingling with the rest of the cast. Among them were rapper DinDin, Jinu from WINNER, and musicians Aron and Kim Jonghyeon (JR), renowned for their work with NU’EST.
In another video, Vice Ganda, Petite, and the cast of the variety show showcased their dancing skills, grooving to 2NE1’s iconic track “I Am the Best.” Sandara Park, being a former member of the K-pop girl group, even treated everyone to an impressive acapella rendition of the song.
To tease her fans about her return, Park took to Twitter and shared photos of herself preparing for her flight. In her caption, she excitedly mentioned her destination as Clark, Philippines, accompanied by the Philippine flag and airplane emojis. She also revealed that visiting Clark, Pampanga would be a new experience for her since she usually went straight to Subic during her previous visits.
According to a press statement by the Clark Development Corporation, Park and the production team specifically chose Clark Freeport as the filming location for the Korean variety show. The statement also disclosed some of the selected sites for shooting, including Cafe B.O.M, Hotel Stotsenberg, and Hotel Seoul.
During the shoot, fortunate fans and onlookers had the opportunity to interact with Sandara Park. In one video, she was seen promoting skincare products while elegantly dressed in a Filipiniana ensemble. The ecstatic reactions from fans were evident, with one admirer unable to contain their joy after personally handing a letter to the beloved actress.
In another video, Sandara Park displayed her business acumen as she led her team in selling Korean products. Proudly showcasing her sales skills in Filipino, she effortlessly engaged with potential customers, drawing on her familiarity with the local language.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Sandara Park would be returning to the Philippines to host a K-pop concert scheduled for April. The highly anticipated event, which was initially planned to include her former 2NE1 bandmate Minzy, unfortunately had to be postponed. Nevertheless, the recent reunion with Vice Ganda and her involvement in the Korean variety show served as a delightful treat for fans eagerly awaiting her return to the entertainment scene.
